    Default Two new polls: Behaviour and attitudes and RedC. SF/FF up. FG/Labour down.

    Two new polls out today - the B&A poll is being discussed elsewhere but I think this is worth a new thread - if not, feel free to merge etc.

    B&A/Sunday Times party support.

    Fine Gael: 26% (-4%)
    Labour: 11% (-1%)
    Fianna Fáil: 24% (+2%)
    Sinn Féin: 19% (+5%)
    Independents/others: 21% (-1%)

    RedC/Sunday Business Post party support.

    Fine Gael: 28% (no change)
    Labour: 11% (-3%)
    Fianna Fáil: 21% (+1)
    Sinn Féin: 19% (+2%)
    Independents/others: 21% (no change)

    Two polls show fall in Government party support - RTÉ News

    The Sunday Business Post

    I've put this in the election forum as I would rather discuss the party support figures in the polls and not get bogged down in the abortion debate - I'm happy to change that if people think it's a good idea.

    So FG/Labour are trending down and SF/FF are on the up!

    There is a quiet crisis in Irish politics. People will have no stomach to vote for any established party. There is definitly room for a new party.

    FF,s best tactic, just let FG make a bollix of everything.

    Seriously though I thought up to now, everything considered, the FG vote was holding up well enough, but these figures will really concern them.

    Ahhhhh that old gag!

    If FF can make a comeback I bet Gary Glitter will feel much more confident about launching a successful comeback tour

    SF are now rising quicker that FF in the polls again, in both polls they have risen more. I wonder could the border poll launch have anything to do with it?

    Northern Ireland - without forgiveness, there is dysfunctionality.

    At least one new party. I reckon we need about three, possibly four new political parties.
    Coveney's ambition is the be Ireland's next EU Commissar and Ireland will pay a price as he builds his CV to position himself sufficiently loyal to the nEU empire.

    Both set of polls fairly similar. Although both polls show a combined FF and SF have greater support than FG/LAB government. Interesting.

    Vote in anger and repent at leisure. Apparently lots of repenting going on.....FF steady as she goes....one must surmise.

    Red C is probably more accurate. FF at 24% seems improbable to say the least. Interesting that both have Labour at 11%.
